OKI KEHINDE JULIUS
Ondo State, Nigeria
single women will start paying the bride price of seven men,
on the matrimonial altar
where marriage shall be for adam and adam
and not for cock and cockereal.
virginity will no longer be the pride of infants and adolescents,
but for foetus sucking the milky breast of the womb;
homosexual scene will be the movie
juveniles will begin to act
on the theatre stage of subsequent generations,
if sexual immoralities and rape assaults
is not sentenced into the cave of life imprisonment
before the conception of 2050,
lucifer would ordained himself as the priest
who’ll be putting on the loin and cassock of sin;
on that sacred pulpit, his deceitful sermon will be preached,
false teachings, which will surely shake human’s feet.
before the bell of 2050 will ring,
economy recession may still be adored as king
if looters keep looting the treasures of africa’s mother
and her empires keep dancing
to the talking drum of corruption.
crude oil may decide not to flow anymore in annoyance,
if vandals keep cutting the oesophagus of pipelines
and avengers keep setting the shrine of oil depot ablaze.
will there be a breathing life,
in the next century to come?
when terrorism slays like sword
and bokos of haram gives people
the visa of death
through the embassy of insurgency.
heaven and hell might be the abode
we’ll be living,
and not these cramble walls architectured with bricks and sands.
before 2050 will come,
the earth might have sleep on the cradle bed of death
and refuse to wake,
till the angel of armageddon
percussion the melody of the last trumpet.
